[lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Bruce Springsteen[/lastfm] will once again sit in with [lastfm link_type=”artist_info”]Joe Grushecky & The Houserockers[/lastfm]…
Bruce joins them for a double shot of shows next month in Pittsburgh. Backstreets.com reported that the gigs are set for November 3rd and 4th near Pittsburgh at the Soldiers & Sailors Memorial Hall & Museum. The concerts follow last year’s November appearance at the venue — on November 3rd and 4th — when “The Boss” took the stage with Grushecky and the band.
Last year’s shows were in celebration of the 15th anniversary of American Babylon — the Springsteen-produced album for Joe Grushecky & the Houserockers. Back in October 1995, Springsteen made headlines when he joined Grushecky as a part of his band for a number of dates in support of American Babylon, which spurred on a welcomed second chapter to Grushecky’s career.
Beginning with Darkness On The Edge Of Town, Springsteen has always aimed for his work to be more than just entertainment, and he hopes that his work will help inspire some type of dialogue among his audience:
“People are looking for ways to have a dialogue about these ideas, about these issues. They’re looking for ways to try to get a handle and make sense of what’s happening, y’know? And I think that music and film and art has a service to perform in that fashion. It can be one of its services.” ~JZ.
